Co-op rules and policies are for residents only. Realtors can only access the rules if they have an active listing with an owner. Property management companies do have the rules but they are not allowed to give it to strangers.

Therefore, you need to speak with a resident in the complex or building and find out about the pets policy.

I am sorry you had this experience. I realize this is an old thread but figured I would answer anyway in case new buyers are reading. Many buyers may want to be at the inspection however it is not imperative. I have had some buyers who really wanted to be there and some who had no desire to go. Most agents will attend the inspection for the buyer whether the buyer attends or not. If anyone has any questions about the home buying process please do not hesitate to contact me.

It should not be tricky to get homeowner's insurance, but it may be challenging to sometimes find an insurance company that will write a policy. A client of mine recently purchased a home just under a mile from the water. Flood insurance was not needed but wind damage insurance was. One company would not write the policy at all and another company wrote the policy and did not require wind damage coverage. The best thing is to get a few estimates then compare them. Once you have had the policy for a year or so, check back with other companies to see if there are better premiums available. ... more

I wouldn't say it's a definite "no, no", but I feel it is personal preference. If you are concerned about high tension wires, I would do some research. If it's a home that you really love and can afford, that's something to take into consideration, too. No one knows what the market values will be years from now. For example, if you are selling a home near high tension wires and the home is one of VERY FEW for sale in the area, that is going to affect the price of your home. (Supply & Demand) There are many factors that going into a home's value. ... more

Keep in mind that a seller's concession needs to be agreed upon before entering into a contract, therefore not sure any conflicts exist; also keep in mind that your lender will be the one conducting the appraisal; for any necessary legal advice do consult with your attirney. ... more

Mike Linkenauger answered:
Hi there! A good rule of thumb is that a short sale is NOT for those who WANT to sell, but only for those that HAVE to sell. If you are not in a financial hardship, you likely will not qualify. If you can no longer afford the payment, then you likely WILL quality. Be careful trusting your financial future to an agent claiming to be an "expert" after taking a weekend training class! We've literally closed hundred in the area. Let us know if you have any questions about the process. You'll also find my main sites the #1 resource for short sale information on the web - ... more

Alan brings up a good point Barabara. Although it wouldnt bother me, it is grounds for you to back out of the deal and potentially get your money paid for inspection etc. back. Granted you would need an attorney to pursue that, you are at least entitled to your deposit money back.

Consult your real estate agent and or attorney if this is the route you want to go.

Gail Gladstone answered:
Who is the Realtor representing your interests? Have you purchased directly through the seller's Realtor?

Your Realtor can be there to represent you and relay the findings to you. If you do not have anyone to represent you and the schedule does not interfere with mine, I will go there as your a service.

If you hire a dependable inspector, they can do the job and report to you; it is not necessary for you to be there. If you do not have anyone you can depend upon, I will to provide referrals for you.

The listing agent understandably wants the inspection as quickly as possible; if for any reason you are not willing to go forward with the deal, they need to accommodate the next in line.

It's not very common, if your seller is paying your closing cost, it means the seller is motivated.
Seller's concession means the buyer borrows the closing cost from the bank with the mortgage. Suppose the price is agreed $300,000 (which is net to seller), now the buyer needs closing cost apporx 5% ($300,000 x5%= $15,000) the contract will be written for $315,000 and house has to appraise for $315,000.
Whenever there is a seller's concession the seller atty would advise to get the Pre-Appraisal done to make sure the appaise value of the house sooner.
Good Luck...

This will probably cause problems in the future. Too many variables. Sounds like a bad situation in the making.

That's something you will find out by experience. Folks have been told for years that having a bankruptcy would not hurt them and then found out it was on their history for seven years or more (depending upon the type) and it did hurt them.

I cannot believe it will be good, but it is sometimes necessary.
